Has the social atmosphere in pubs and clubs improved since the UK smoking ban?

The atmosphere in pubs is generally subdued, with a feeling of you're being watched!!! A constant interruption in the flow of conversation. The one place to put the world to rights over a couple of pints and a fag is gone (for now)!!!!

Pay attention antis : The atmosphere in pubs and clubs is almost as good as the atmosphere in a mental hospital.

Pub staff twiddle their thumbs in boredom while 80% of their customers are outside the fucking pub, including rabid hypocritical antis.

Smokers and their non smoking companions spend at least half the night going out and back again, while slimy antis follow them (leaving a trail of slime all over the joint) because outside is now where the atmosphere is

Those who remain in the pub have hardly anyone to talk to.

Remember : We are talking about the social atmosphere. And thats what its like now that the nazi party (ASH and co) have come to power.

Slimy, snivelling, antis. Sliming their way through our society, leaving nothing but a slimy wet patch wherever they go. Well done, slimy antis, youve ruined pub and club culture with your incessant slime.


Antis : I have 2 questions.

Smoking is not just about consuming tobacco. It is, and always has been, about socialising aswell, just like drinking and eating are also about socialising. You also know that many people smoke socially. Eating and drinking have always been social activities, thats why people have dinner parties and chats over a drink. Its why people go to pubs and restaurants, as you know.

1 - Why do you assume that smokers will be satisfied merely with the consumption of tobacco, outside a pub, whilst knowing that smoking is a social activity, and that being outside a pub is not the same as being inside, in comfort, and whilst also knowing that pubs, as buildings, are there to cater for people who wish to socialise?

2 - Would you be happy to be banned from drinking inside pubs (hypothetically, for whatever reason)? In other words, would the consumption of alcohol, in itself, be enough for you to enjoy yourself, even if youre outside?

In most pubs since the ban there is very little social activity, its mostly outside in the garden. Most pubs now have a deserted feel about them, conversation is almost non-existent and a smoker may just as well stay at home with cut price drinks from the supermarket, but at least a feeling of freedom.
Another thing I have noticed is the number of small children inside has increased, and not many of them well-behaved. I always understood they were not allowed in licensed premises where there was a bar.

My understanding Pipe Smoker is that there is a minimum age for children in pubs I think it is somewhere around twelve but it should be in the licencing act somewhere I take your point reference behaviour of children in pubs, it is however an issue for the parents to control them.

I admit that when bringing up my own children my ex-wife and would regularly use pubs while in town, used properly children can be taught the standard of decorum expected by other pub users. Having said that I agree that too many parents now treat pubs as a creche abusing the good nature of the what remains of the pubgoing public.

The social atmosphere in bars has been utterly ruined.

This is all thanks to the lilachamsters of this world who blame the world for their health problems, instead of taking some damn responsibility for themselves.

What an utterly pathetic way to exist.

Oh by the way lilachamster, i challenge you to a one on one debate. You know where to go.
